A collection of hymns and spirituals, recorded live at St. Michael's Church in Isla Vista, California.

Nate Birkey - trumpet

If you want to hear the roots of jazz within a modern quintet context, this album will give you a very special, introspective perspective. And you'll rarely hear a trumpet player with such a deep self-expression as Nate Birkey."
